El Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead) – a day-long fiesta of fun, food, and prayers to celebrate and remember loved ones who have passed. It is common for family of the deceased to light candles in the crypts and refresh old ribbons, clean the grave of weeds, sometimes dusting off the dirt or adding a coat of new paint.
